Growing Up

You were born to play

Literally every speech i deliver involves a selfie-moment. Over-focused so the audience has a tangible memory of the event. Work feels like play. This is a risk i took at TEDx AUK.

We experience time three ways:

  1. anticipate (future)
  2. activate (present)
  3. reflect (past)

Our perception of time is an unfocused mix of now, later, and gone.

Until we can unravel our own distractions and sabotage, we will never learn to live presently, mindfully, and peacefully. 

We are born to play. It’s how we learn.

When we stop playing, we stop learning.

Being mindful and present to understand the significance of this 72-hour window.

Podcast

Three outta four

Omar Nour
Omar Nour, 2019 TEDxAUK speaker one. Here, he’s having fun with Jack during our group AV check.

Three outta four podcasts we planned got recorded at Walt Disney World yesterday.

We finished the last three episodes of Season 4.

Didn’t make it to Fort Wilderness to do the first episode of season 5.

Maybe it was the wisdom of the Universe telling us to pause before beginning a brand new season with a brand new focus.

i trust what the Universe has to say but am not always present to listen.

Carving Out A Life

Church at Home

Beginning the hour-long bike ride home last night.

Church at Home.

Religion is often full of habits and rituals.

There’s a reason for this.

The reason is that it maintains a standard, makes expectations and consequences clear, and allows for observable improvements to happen over time.

How we organize our home life – the structure and processes – for handling the administrative side of being a functioning member of society.

We can learn much from long-term sustainable structure and process.

We can also learn much from not being present, mindful, and motivated to change as times and conditions warrant.

Final 120 Days

Enjoyed the moment rather than capture it

For a guy who takes a lot of photos, i didn’t take many yesterday. This one was an afterthought.

Enjoyed the moment rather than capture it.

Rare.

Would i do it the same way again?

Probably not.

Do i regret not taking more photos?

Nope.

Son, it’s ok to be okay with not doing what you always do.

Remember, however, that great habits are scalable and produce superior long-term results. Aim for perfection, settle for excellence.

The absence of a group photo, when we had everyone here, would have been great but not having it doesn’t dimmish the memory of a wonderful day.
